Usualy this is a sign of air left in the hydraulic system. vent that carefully. then it should work.

hi considering age of car and that you have no leaks on hydraulics? may i suggest you try bleeding the clutch to rid of old fluid a couple of pumps may be suffice ? b/fluid does absorb moisture and heat over time hence recommendation tat fluid be changed at period specified in handbooks ie 12 monthly ?

these are very hard to bleed, also check your fire wall for damage where the clutch master bolts up. another thing is take a good look at the clutch pedal asm, the frame sometimes wears and cracks so you loose a little pedal travel.another thing is a bad preasure plate,spring breaks on plate,

Provided the mechanical portion of our clutch is good then you still have some air somewhere in the hydraulic system and it's often very hard to get out. One trick I use is to use my hand vacuum pump with a little cover I made to cover the fill hole on top of the master cylinder. I pump up about 15" of vacuum on the system and often that will pull out the few air bubbles submerged in the fluid that prevent the system from working. Once you get most of the air out usually the rest will work out if you press and release the clutch pedal several times. Sometimes it works very quickly, sometimes I've fought them for an hour or more to get back to a normal pedal. Of course if you have an actual mechancial problem inside the bellhousing with the pressure plate or disc then nothing you do on the outside will work until that is repaired.
